A Southern Pastor: Saying Merry Christmas

A Southern Pastor: Saying Merry Christmas

First of all, there has never been a demand to do away with “Merry Christmas.” It is simplistic and uninformed to make such a claim.

Did you use social media, specifically Facebook, last year leading up to the election? Millions did.

Should We Kill The Mentally Ill? Two European Nations Say Yes

The practice was once prohibited, but it is back. Belgium and the Netherlands are euthanizing people with mental and cognitive disorders. In 2002, Belgium legalized euthanasia for people suffering from unbearable and non-treatable medical conditions. This includes terminal or non-terminal conditions, including psychiatric ones.

“Blood and soil!” “Jews will not replace us!” You know where people chanted these slogans, don’t you? Berlin, circa 1938, right? Technically, yes.

Evangelicals Feel Persecuted Because They Have To Treat People Equally

Unfortunately, many minority groups in this country experience persecution on a daily basis. Also, one majority group thinks they are being persecuted constantly when they aren’t. That would be right-wing Evangelical Christians.

Michelle Obama Is On Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed List, Melania Is NOT — And Trumpers Are P*SSED
